Background: HIV-infected women are disproportionately affected by human papillomavirus (HPV)-related anogenital disease. A5240 is a clinical trial of 319 HIV-infected women at US, Brazil and South Africa sites to determine immunogenicity and safety of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine.
Methods: Safety and serostatus of HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18 were examined in 222 women. The vaccine was administered at 0, 8, 24 weeks in 3 strata based on screening CD4: >350 (A), 201-350 (B), ≤200 cells/mm3 (C). HPV serotyping was performed using competitive Luminex Immuno-Assay (HPV-4 cLIA). HPV type-specific seroconversion analysis was on participants seronegative for the given type at baseline. Seroconversion was defined by: ≥20, ≥16, ≥20, ≥24 mMU/mL for types 6, 11, 16, 18 respectively. Two-sided 95% CIs are provided.
Results: We report preliminary safety and week 28 seroconversion results from A and B. At baseline, median age was 37 years (range 19-45), 13% were white, 57% black, and 29% Hispanic. Median nadir CD4 was 262 cells/mm3, 41% had undetectable HIV-1 viral load, 13% from non-US sites. No safety issues were identified; none of the grade ≥3 AEs was thought to be vaccine-related.Proportion of Women who Seroconverted 4 weeks After the Vaccination Series:

Conclusions: Quadrivalent HPV vaccine targeted at types 6, 11, 16, and 18 is safe and highly immunogenic in HIV-infected women 19-45 years old with CD4 >200.
